Abstract

To integrate wind power into the electrical power system studies need to be made of its impact. Wind plants are stochastic in nature and this makes them differ from traditional plants. One method to model the stochastic nature of wind plants is to create a wind field model and simulate wind data that can then be used to determine power outputs. There are a large number of models available, however often these models are not adequately validated. This paper proposes a number of criteria that all wind field models should be validated against and the methods that can be used to do this.
